How My Love for Hunter Boots Started
It’s April, I hear the birds chirping, it’s sunny, but also April brings rain showers. I know right now we are all quarantined, but I also know that most of you are going outside for walks to get some fresh air. I am ready to start busting out more of my Spring wardrobe and the first thing I think of is wearing my Hunter rain boots. So during your midday walks, I’m sure you all want to be prepared if rain is in the forecast.
My obsession with Hunter rain boots started back in 2006ish? Right when I saw the Olsen twins started wearing them. And of course, back then, I loved everything they wore. They were my style goddesses haha. So I will admit, I would have never thought rubber boots would be so chic if it weren’t for Mary-Kate and Ashley.
Anyways, wearing rain boots is definitely a spring wardrobe staple. Cold or warm, it will rain and these boots will protect you from those unexpected puddles. Chicago has tons of those. Usually on street intersections because there is a slight dip or pot hole haha. The pair I am wearing is the classic tall in a navy blue color. If I had the money and space to store them, I would love to have these rain boots in several colors. I am eyeing the pink, red, and green.
Sizes & Options
As for sizing, they only come in whole sizes. I usually wear 7.5, and I got a size 7. If you have wider feet, I recommend going half a size up.
If you are not into the tall boots, they also come in calf-length (short) and ankle-length boots (chelsea). And if you have wide-calves, they also have wide-leg boots. Part of me wishes that’s what I got. I like to have extra room around my legs. I actually wear these rain boots during the Winter, and their boot socks take up a little bit of space and makes the calf area more snug.
My Hunter Rain Boots Outfit
Oversized Jean Jacket
Without a doubt, a jean jacket is a must especially during Spring! I own several kinds, and I love this Madewell jacket because the length is longer than your average jean jacket and it has a slight over sized fit. This means more room to layer. But I love that it doesn’t look like you are drowning in the jean jacket. Sometimes oversized jackets can look frumpy, but my oversized jean jacket has a bit more tailored fit to it. I recommend getting your true size. I’m wearing a size small.
Faux Leather Leggings
I’ve been raving about my Spanx faux leather leggings and showcased several ways to style them. So yes, it is worth getting! I’ve tried on more affordable faux leather leggings, and they just felt and looked cheap. These leggings are made to last! They are snug at first, but once you have them on, they are so comfortable! Definitely get your true size. No need to size up.
My thermal tunic looks like your average tunic top, but something about it I am obsessed with. It’s comfortable, loose fitting, and I love the open-back. Not too open that it will expose your bra straps, but it’s just a fun detail. I really love the low v-neck, because it’s a great way to accessorize with my lace bralette.
This tunic top is also great for Spring because it is the perfect ‘just throw it on’ outfit. So effortless!
Best Tote Bag Ever
Oh, and if you are looking for a tote bag, this is the one you need! I had it since it first came out and I love it! The quality is incredible and it is so roomie! Almost every women in my family owns it. Plus, it looks so chic. It has the perfect brown leather color.
So who’s ready for Spring?!
And remember, stay home unless you absolutely need to. Although April showers brings May flowers, I think the new saying now is April distance brings May existence.
